Sandy Alomar never considered a candidate?


I know many of us have beaten a dead-horse with this managerial search, but I'm going to give the dead horse one more kick while Hurdle makes up his mind.

I'm curious what our community thinks of Sandy Alomar Jr. I'm not sure if he has been mentioned in other threads or not. As we know, he was a finalist for the Blue jays job, but that eventually went to Farrell.

Alomar, having played in Cleveland, I assume would have some sort of Neal Huntington connection. I don't know if they were ever in the organization at the same time, but surely their paths crossed. He has never managed at any level, so perhaps the Bucs wanted someone with prior experience, or maybe Alomar wants nothing to do with the Pirates.

Whether or not he'd actually be a good manager I don't know. I guess I'm just surprised with the Cleveland connection, his Latin American roots, strong interest from the Blue jays, and excellent ability as a former catcher that he was never even mentioned as a candidate.
